1/5 How to "De-Salt" your pants and boots

Posted on January 5, 2010 at 12:41 PM

It's that lovely time of the year when we're trudging around in inch after inch of snow, and with snow comes salt...

You know what I'm talking about, those lovely rings around the bottom of your pants are a tell-tale sign that it's snowing outside, and there's no avoiding them, but if you're anything like me, you have a pair or two of black pants that you can only wear when it's snowing because you can't get that oh-so flattering ring off of them. Maybe you're a tuck-er and don't have salt stains on your pants, but in that case, I bet your Uggs are looking pretty rough right now. Suede and salt are not a great combo either.

Well, you no longer have to reserve those pants for the snow or walk around with white boots, because I'm going to tell you how to get rid of those nasty salt stains!

To remove salt stains from fabric:

Mix one tablespoon white distilled vinegar with a cup of COLD water (hot or warm water will set the stain) and soak the bottoms of your pants in this over night. If the stains are still not gone, dampen a soft cloth with straight vinegar and wipe the remaining stains off, then launder as usual.

To remove salt from Suede:

First use a brush to gently brush off any loose excess salt that may be lingering. Then using the same mixture as above.: 1 Tablespoon vinegar and 1 cup COLD water, dampen a soft cloth and blot the area until stains are removed. If this mixture does not work, add more vinegar. It may take some time, but it should get everything off. Remember: Do not rub, only blot. 

To remove Salt from Leather:

Same thing. use Vinegar and water mixture to wipe away salt stains.

I hope this helps, and at the rate we're going, we're all going to be cleaning salt off of our clothes and boots ALOT this winter so good luck and try to stay warm!
